OSB: Configuring Backup / Restore Through Firewalls (Doc ID 727528.1)

Oracle Secure Backup - Version to [Release 10.1 to 12.1]

Oracle Secure Backup uses TCP port 400 for UNIX, Linux and Windows and by default TCP port 10,000 for NAS hosts within an OSB domain. The default TCP port for NAS devices may be configured to use an alternate TCP port if deemed necessary because a conflict exists.

During backup and restore operations, OSB will dynamically select a TCP port from all available TCP ports. Some IT organizations enforce restrictions on the TCP ports that are available for use by an application, particularly as in cases where backups are being performed across a firewall.
